Far better qualified than the last fiasco! Andrew comes to us as an experienced and strategic venue manager who has held various senior leadership roles within the sport, event, recreation, tourism and hospitality industries. Over the last 13 years he has managed public sector businesses in Queensland, including as the manager of national park gateway visitor centres and residential outdoor recreation venues. These appointments have had a strong focus on business planning, conservation advocacy, curriculum linked education programs, leadership, community engagement and delivering public sector value. He also worked for 5 years in Queenstown, New Zealand as Manager of a council owned events centre. Andrew’s private sector experience includes destination marketing for hotels, resorts and transport services at Mt Buller, including the development of all-inclusive packages in both the white and green seasons. He has a strong community sport and recreation focus, having worked with a number of member based organisations in the Victorian ski industry and university sport sector. Andrew has been recognised as a Safety Champion for his work on developing emergency management plans and is credited as the author and creator of Snowsafe – Alpine Safety Booklet. He holds a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration and a Bachelor in Arts in Recreation management.

Transport at Buller I believe, if you consider that snow experience, otherwise his credentials sound very similar to the previous GM.

Baw Baw has finally appointed a new General manager Andrew Tingate It sounds as if the Board has at last picked someone with actual snow experience!

Beautiful day for a drive in the new car and lunch in the hills with your mate (he works hard and it's nice to spend the day together) New 80kmhr speed limit is too low for performance cars in a lot of spots. A spirited stab of the throttle and it's big fine or licence gone, even at low levels of spirited driving. Should be 100 with more warning / caution signs e.g. speed limit 80 if you are not confident or experienced or whatever Village cafe makes a mean hokkien noodle. Felt the stoke and vibes amongst everyone there today Amazing weather for hiking; planning an AAWT trip within the next 2 years. April - May seems like a great time imo Snow factory going to work

Noticed that being used last weekend. The mattress was inflated and guys were lined up top and bottom.

Slalom: Mountain bike jump - inflatable landing pad.
Not sure I would like to land on an inflatable device with a bike - lots of sharp or pointy metal bits like handle bars and brake levers impacting with significant force! I guess they know what they are doing?

Big mountain bike events this weekend!

New General Manager for Baw Baw, Mr Mark Turner. Don't know much about him yet but I believe he has already started.

As far as I know Sally is only acting in that position, but judging by her answers nothing is going to happen in the short term, and long term will depend on funding, so dubious again.

I don't normally visit snow resorts in the off season, but about a month ago I said to my wife how about we go to Baw Baw and I will show you the South Face Road. She only knew the tourist road from Noojee. We went the old road first (made me realise how much easier the South Face Road is!) and came home via SFR, Erica etc.While there we were just wandering around the resort, taking a few photos (seemed weird with no snow!), a lady and a fellow, came along and struck up a conversation with us. She had a name badge on and I suddenly realised that she was Sally, the new manager. Not sure who the fellow was. When she found out that I'd been skiing there for over 36 years she asked lots of questions about how the place had changed over that time, then started to ask about what I thought was needed for the future. As is often the case, there were lots of things that I should have said, but didn't think of them until we were on our way home, but I mentioned sealing SFR, a chairlift for either Summit or Maltese, and connection to the grid. She said it was very doubtful that Baw Baw would be connected to the grid and she was working on getting funding for an upgraded on-resort power station. She said that sealing SFR was a priority but that it may be a couple of years before work commences. She also said that a chairlift was also a priority, but there was a lot of work needed to make that happen. So, interesting conversation and as I said, lots of things I should have said, but she seemed keen to see Baw Baw continue and progress forward.:)
